Artist's description:

Multiple butterflies displayed inside an authentic taxidermy case. Each butterfly is hand cut and pinned off a black background. Black wire antennae are fixed to all butterflies. The overall effect is one of a mass of butterflies making a chaotic attempt to escape the confines of their box. The artwork transforms the familiar uniformity of the butterfly specimen box into a scene that has come alive. Injecting life and a frenzied movement into what are usually static displays.

The display case is made from hardwood with Matt black finish. The hinges are made from polished brass. Fixings are attached to the back to allow the case to be hung.

Sizes available:

Regular: 50.8 x 35.6 x 6.0cm: £495
Regular deeper: 50.8 x 35.6 x 9.5cm: £520
Larger: 61 x 40 x 9.5cm: £650

Boxes are available in three sizes. Lead time for these are approx 2-3 weeks.
Each picture has been individually framed and signed by the artist and a brief description/ name of species provided on the reverse.

Every picture is unique as it is produced entirely by hand. The process of production is random which adds to the uniqueness of this artwork. As a result, the final piece may vary slightly from the picture shown. The butterflies have also been modified to achieve a desired aesthetic rather than being true to their zoological species.

If you have any specific requests, such as frame size, colour or type of butterfly, please do not hesitate to ask. I am more than happy to create bespoke pieces. Prices are available on request.
